If you're in need for a heavy-haul trailer with low clearance, than look no further than the new 50-Ton 50CC-BH trailer that Talbert Manufacturing has designed and engineered. The trailer features rollers and a snatch block that allow you to pull equipment from either end of the trailer using the 20,000-pound planetary in-deck winch via remote control. The 50CC-BH is equipped with three close-coupled axles and features a 22-foot 6-inch lower deck length, plus a 20-foot 5-inch rear bridge, creating a 43-foot load base.

Started in 1967, BWS has grown from a second generation family run business into a successful corporation building state-of-the-art trailers and bodies for about every application imaginable--agriculture, construction, forestry, oil & gas, commercial trucking, and specialized trailers. Fast forward to 2017 and it seems hard to believe that BWS started in the manor that it did, in the small village of Centreville, NB and has grown exponentially over time. This was a single person operation in its inception, but no longer is that the truth. From small, humble beginnings in an effort to provide a service to the local area, Bernie’s Welding Shop was born. Burney McDougall started by making small custom projects for farm and forestry. Gradually, projects like outfitting trucks with plows and dump bodies came to the fruition.

Springtime freight is coming on strong, and rates are climbing. We're starting to see more of the seasonal trends we're used to, but freight rates from DAT RateView show that van rates (including fuel surcharge) on the spot market for February were down 5.1% compared to a year ago. As a national average, that equates to about a 10¢ difference per mile. Spot market rates were elevated throughout 2014 because of the Polar Vortex, but DAT RateView™ data shows that, if you take away the fuel surcharge, the average linehaul rate was actually 9¢ higher in February 2015 than the previous year.
